Adults are not the only population lacking in addiction and mental health care. Studies show that our adolescent population doesn’t receive the diagnosis or care they need. Early identification, diagnosis and the start of treatment help prevent the loss of critical years of development and prolonged suffering.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about 8% of teens from 13-18 have an anxiety disorder with symptoms typically arriving around the age of 6. Only 18% of these teens diagnosed with an anxiety disorder receive mental health care.
Therapy helps adolescents learn to identify and change harmful or negative thoughts and behaviors while learning to accept their condition. In addition, therapy helps adolescents develop effective coping mechanisms, problem-solving skills, and improves their interpersonal communication skills.
